Movie trivia:
M. Night Shyamalan was so impressed with the episode ‘The Tale of the Dream Girl’ from ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ that he rewrote the whole episode , changed a few details and made a feature film out of it called The Sixth Sense. Critics raved about his genius screenplay and for a while, he was believed to be the new Hitchcock.
The original screenwriter never got credited…and M Night’s career has been going downhill ever since.

I think the real moral of the story is that he needs to rip of another ep of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” for his next movie. It could star Sardo the Magician!
